i am using BSNL night unlimited for 5 years [ 117.xx.xx.xx connection ] . i have never exceeded 2.5 gb allowed day time use . my downloads run on scheduler and switch off at 8 AM if i forget to turn them off at 7:45 AM .

yesterday Nov 15 it shows between 8 AM - 10:42 AM i downloaded 1.1 gb . absolutely out of the question .
i do not use wifi . i strictly believe in RJ 45 wire connections for this very reason .
can my DataOne have been hacked ?

i have changed modem password and changed BSNL Broadband login password today an hour back . what else can be done ? [ previously modem password was admin - admin since i thought that there was port binding and no one can hack into my account . this is a 6 month old modem . the previous modem had my own password ]

is it
A ) BSNL database mistake [ in which case i have no defense . no way they will accept my own Networx data that i used only 50 mb in entire day after 8 AM ]
B ) can someone access my adsl modem / router remotely [ D Link ADSL modem router ]
C ) something i do not know ? one point is as soon as i switched off my connection at 10:42 AM it stopped . there is no download after 10:42 AM . my connection is bridge mode . so if anyone was hacking they need me to be logged in . what can i do ?

any help / suggestion will be much appreciated .

I read in some thread somewhere that your BSNL userid and password can be used in another BSNL line. I am not sure of this, just read it here in some thread.

BSNL user ID and password are binded to the telephone line/number since a very long time.

Port binding is there are most places. Seems like the op got unlucky. Anyway, talk to the ao and explain your situation, they'll reverse the charges.
